I knew it had been a while since I posted on here! Apparently I hadn’t posted since NOVEMBER of last year! Oops! And then apparently a WordPress update messed up a connection between my blog and it’s database in March and I didn’t even visit my own blog and find out it was completely down until now. It’s had no views since March.

If you actually follow my poor, neglected blog, I’m sorry!

I’ve been feeling inspired to write and post again lately. My daughter is now 14 months old and we have lots of fun reading and playing together these days. Since we are planning to homeschool, it’s like the homeschooling has already begun, even though we don’t do anything formal. I’ve been thinking of writing about the kinds of activities we do and the books we read as preparation for the homeschool years later on. As homeschooling gains popularity and more homeschool grads are having children of their own, I think it’s more common for young families to plan on homeschooling before their first child reaches school age. It is such a wonderful thing to know that in advance and to be able to set the stage for the particular brand of homeschooling you plan to follow.

We plan to homeschool in a very Charlotte Mason/classical way. In the early years, I think this calls for lots of outdoor time, lots of free time (“masterly inactivity”), and lots of books. I’ll post more on these ideas soon.

I may not have many readers at present, but I do hope that one day I will become a more consistent blogger and that this little series about homeschooling for the little years will become a helpful resource in my archives.

And because new pictures are long overdue–
